Congratulations Class of 2017


Spring 2017 6187 Capstone

The MPA Team Capstone class presented their project entitled Citizens Capital Budget Advisory Committee Review to Mecklenburg County government executives Tuesday at the Government Center downtown and did a tremendous job.

In fact, the report has been so well received that the students have been asked by County Manager Dena Diorio to present to the full County Board of Commissioners in the near future. See the report here.


Spring MPA Advisory Board Meeting on   March 31

     Members of our 26 member MPA Practitioner Advisory Board convened over lunch with faculty, students and staff at Center City on March 31 to discuss the state of the program and share ideas on how to deepen the relationships between the MPA program and government/nonprofit agencies in the region.  Highlights include the endorsement of a mission statement for the Board and the initiation of an advisory board student scholarship.  
     We are grateful to this special group of community and student leaders who provide support and direction to the MPA program! Contact Dr. Barth for more details on board membership and activities.
